A Tesla and Twist test drive all in one

Published #tesla, #twist, #iphone, #app, #context, #location, #calendar

Yesterday I got to drive a Tesla S test drive. But why? To try out a new iPhone app that lets people know when you are going to arrive. Get the app here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/twist/id449988837?mt=8

I've been using it for the past few weeks and it really rocks. Better than competitor Glympse, because it works better. We go into why in the interview (stick around after the Tesla drive to see more).

Waze gets you gassed up (the best crowd-sourced traffic app just got better)

Published #traffic, #mobile, #app, #map, #local, #navigate, #cops, #plan, #route

Waze is a traffic app. You know, a map system. But why do we need it when we have Google Maps, the new Apple maps, Nokia maps, Bing maps, and other systems to get around? Well, Waze uses all of us to make the system better. You can report accidents to others. Let everyone know about hazards, or cops, but now they added a cool feature that can actually save you money. What is it? They show you gas prices on the map and even made a deal with a ton of US gas stations to save Waze'rs money. Get it at http://www.waze.com/

Way over the freaky line (but very cool) is PlaceMe, journaling app

Published #location, #move, #iphone, #android, #journal, #app

Everyone I've shown this app to today (it came out last week) says "that's freaky." What does it do? It captures a ton of data on your phone as you move through the world. Right now it keeps a list of places. But here I sit down with founder Sam Liang for a discussion about just what data it captures, how that data could be used, and how he's going to get people to cross the freaky line. This is the future folks and, it, is, indeed, freaky. Learn more at https://www.placemeapp.com/placeme/ It's a free Android or iPhone app.
